Butch Jones has taken the Tennessee Volunteers from a team that underachieves to a potential Division Winner. The problem with Tennessee is they still aren’t living up to the hype.

If you asked most people who the best team from top to bottom was in the SEC East, most would say Tennessee. But the Vols just were not able to finish out games in the fourth quarter earlier this season, and it cost them a chance to win the Eastern Division crown.

The good news is, the Vols seem to be coming around. They will likely finish the season 8-4 with a good bit of momentum. And maybe they’ll live up to the preseason billing in 2016.
